This page should point you to the many different general and lab-specific protocols describing tissue and cell lysis and serve as forum for comparison.

Comparison of lysis methods

Sonication

  • most efficient method of cell fractionation
  • problem: heat build up which can denature proteins (proportionate to length of sonication)
  • precaution: do on ice and sonicate intermittantly

Homogenisation

  • best for animal tissue; less suitable for cells
  • precaution: do on ice to reduce heat build-up and denaturation

Freeze-thaw

  • least effective method
  • plus: does not denature proteins as much as other methods

Detergents

  • chemical method of lysis
  • problems: detergent may inhibit subsequent reactions
  • problems: detergent may disrupts protein interactions

Specific protocols

description/link target lysis method type of material
Silver: Lysate for Western protein detergent (Triton) eukaryotic cells
Sauer:Lysing E. coli with Lysozymes lysozyme bacteria
Blackburn:Yeast Colony PCR DNA NaOH yeast
Jacobs:Protocol Total Protein Isolation Using RIPA Lysis Buffer protein detergent (RIPA buffer) cell line
Streptomyces:Protocols/Mini-Maxi Prep DAN NaOH bacteria
Western Blot/Tissue Preparation protein detergent & physical disruption tissue
